Malt beverages of any kind aren’t my thing, I may be young, but no one deserves this. Spend a few more bucks and get something a little better, like Bud.

Bottle shared at Cotteridge convention 05/03/2016. Many thanks to MacBoost and team. A pale yellow liquid with a fine white head. Aromais worty, sugar liquid, papery, spicy pepper. Flavour is composed of semi sweet, thin malts, powdery, grainy, gababe. Palate is thin, dry, chalky, papery. Meh, bad.

This one is for the brothers who couldn’t be here with us. If you going to do a 40 you might as well do it right and this is it. Comes in a clear plastic bottle ( I liked the glass better), I unscrew the top, stick it in a brown bag and drink it that way. Color? Yellow. Head? You’ve got to be kidding. And I don’t smell it, I drink it. The taste has always been decent. Corn, doughy sort of and an interesting sweetish finish. Sometimes it isn’t the destination, it is the journey.

32oz bottle. Pours an amber color with fizzy tan head. Super grainy and sweet aroma. Sickly sweet flavor. Light to medium bodied with a super sweet finish and flavor throughout. It’s like pretty much every malt liquor.

Canned. Pretty gross. Didn’t even bother to pour it. Lots of malt not much next.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2017 40 oz. glass bottle stolen from Chan Park’s Kwik-E in San Agosto, California. Poured into a Plastic Snoopy water bowl. Tastes like terrier, brass spoon, polyurethane and freebase residue. Slight notes of malty kibble and old peed linoleum subfloor. Big, stupid bubbles symbolize the loss of will to live. As it warms, don’t care anymore. Got to go buy a lottery ticket before 7 oclock. Definitely try if only to taste the dishonesty that exists between human beings.

Fowty. Yellow color. White foam. Skunk aroma. Metallic. Skunky flavor. Not pleasant. Worse as it warms.

Aroma - Sweet and somewhat over powering, some what of a fruity or expired fruit smell. Appearance - Good looking bottle. Sold in the big 40 Oz bottles because bulk is always cheaper. Taste - I drink this stuff warm as I do most beer. I find it honestly smoother and more flavourful that way. It has a clean, crisp taste and a smooth finish. Many will find the first 4 or 5 drinks will be a struggle, but after that it goes down nicely. Palate - Somewhat of a fruity, sugary taste while still keeping true to it’s golden colour. Overall - This always has been, and always will be my go to when i have enough money for it. It’s a treat that you splurge on when pay day comes around. Great beer, only downside is the aroma.

Wow! Just wow. So it actually looks like it might be refreshing if icy and cold but no. No, no, no! It pours a nice light golden color with a pure white head that has good retention....aaaand that’s where it ends. Zero flavor except maybe a little sweetness reminiscent of a cantaloupe. Has a body of a glass of water and an aroma of a stale band-aid. That’s all I’ve got but then again what else do you need to know!

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2017 32-ounce container. Pours surprisingly light and sparkly. Babycham-esque. Toasty grainy scent. Not much. Taste also not much. Sweet and not too offensive but quite artificial. Weirdly astringent taste in the finish. Necco wafers and eggy bread in the aftertaste. Not impossibly awful but fairly pitiful.
